Andy Patsalides, marketing manager of London Biggin Hill Airport said: “We were delighted to welcome so many friends and business colleagues to BGAD for the first time here at Biggin Hill. The event was not only a real showcase for the airport, but we were especially delighted that by moving the show to London for the first time, it resulted in a significant increase in both visitor and exhibitor numbers.”
“We were proud to be able to to round the day off with a tribute to ‘The Few’, who flew from Biggin Hill during the Battle of Britain, with a special flying display from a based Hurricane, providing a fitting finale to a valuable and achieving business aviation focus” he said.
BGAD was hosted at Biggin Hill on the nationally recognised Battle of Britain Day in the year of the 75th anniversary of the historic air campaign of 1940.
